The Friend Who Wasn't There is an episode of Monsters vs. Aliens. It aired on October 26, 2013.
Link spends time with Sqweep in order to obtain his "Pheromonium" spray, which he believes will make Sta'abi attracted to him. While spending time with Sqweep, they become good friends and Sqweep enjoys Link's company, and so does Link enjoy his, but when Sqweep reminds him of his room (which is where the Pheromonium spray is) he abandons him. The activities were rounders, scrapbooking, an alien blasting game, dancing game and sky lining. Unfortunately, it's intended for use by a race of alien mantises, and makes any other adult female want to eat him until it wears off and sadly, the Pheromonium doesn't wear off for 3-4 weeks, but Link and Sqweep have each other and checkers so it's okay.
- Sqweep has to be a male since the pheromonium didn't affect him which it only affects females.
- Mantis from Kung Fu Panda makes a cameo in this episode as the holographic mantis demonstrated by Sqweep.
- Since female mantises normally eat male mantises because of their big size comparisons, it seems strange that Sta'abi, Susan, and the female employees would want to eat Link.
- This is the 3rd time Link ticks Sqweep off or makes him/her sad.
